Happy October All!

I celebrate the birth
of my most favorite month of the year
an ATC sized white ghost pumpkin card all star dusted
and happily nested in her
desert digs...
a hint of what is to come...very, very soon.
Only three days remain of our seasonal love affair
in the Midwest... 
making today somewhat truly bittersweet...;)

"Bittersweet October.
The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause
 between the opposing miseries of summer
and winter."
~Carol Bishop Hipps,
"October," In a Southern Garden, 1995

Happy Anniversary Yosemite Park!

What a cryin'
shame we have a government shutdown in the works!!!
Come on Congress!
Get it together!!!

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
~John Muir, Our National Parks
